‘Asian Art in London’, Auctions

In London there are some very promising auctions during Asian Art in London, although, it seems to me, you would need the deepest of deep pockets to patronise all these events, not to mention the ability to make oneself available in duplicate to attend all the viewings, assess the offerings and then attend the sales. Of course, I realise that many buyers do not actually attend the sales but, instead, use dealers, the internet or the auction house to secure the purchases. Speaking personally, most of the fun for me is actually being there: the excitement of the chase, the adrenalin rush of bidding and the exhilaration of landing the catch, so to speak!
